Why can’t I continue to use other trash containers?

The automated collection program uses vehicles that are equipped with a lifting mechanism. The lifting mechanism reaches out to the specially designed cart provided by GFL (former WCA), lifts it up, empties the contents and returns the cart to its original position near the curb. Due to the variety of shapes and sizes of store purchased trash cans, only the designated carts provided can be used for automated collection services. GFL recommends utilizing your existing containers for bulk trash or yard waste.
